Question

A deuteron and a proton are accelerated by the cyclotron. Can both be accelerated with the same oscillator frequency? Give reason to justify your answer.

Solution

Deuteron has same charge as proton and double its mass.

No, they can't be accelerated with same oscillator frequency because angular frequency is directly proportional to qm (keeping magnetic field constant), and q/m is different for deuteron and proton.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
